I've recently dug up a patch of the garden and taken out a whole bunch of daffodil bulbs. I want to keep these bulbs, so what should I do with them now that I have dug them up?

Would I be better planting them now or storing them and planting them at a more suitable time? If I should store them, what's the best way to store the bulbs?

The easiest way to store them is to put them in the ground. However, if for some reason, you can't plant them again, wash them thoroughly, keep them in a well ventilated area for a week or so, and then put them in paper or cloth bags.

Write the date on a label in case you forget when you dug them up.


To add to the answer by @Alina...

Store in a cool dark place.
